I have a 8mo BA that I think is going broody. I came home late from work and went to collect the eggs and there she was in the nesting box sitting on everyones eggs. Not thinking too much about it I reached under her to grab the eggs and noticed that all the feathers under her belly were plucked out. I'm pretty new to chickens so I apologize in advance for the stupid question but is she too young to be broody?? My husband grew up around his grandparents chickens and he made a comment the other day that the same pullet was making a clucking noise like she was going to go broody. I totally dismissed it thinking what does he know LOL. Am I going to have to breakdown and admit he was right?!? Ok and if she is broody what do I do? We don't have a rooster so nothing will hatch. Should I buy her a dozen Trader Joes eggs and see what happens? Thanks for any advice!!
